My father Edwin Arthur Quilter was a chindit with the 2nd Leicesters,he never spoke of this & I only found out about it in the last few years,when I sent away for his army service records I was stunned to find that twice he went a.w.o.l, once for 5 days, surely at the time he could have been shot for desertion,his records make no mention of any punishment (his records dont say much of anything except he spent a lot of time in hospital with malaria) does anyone have any idea of why.

Webmaster comments   Hi Jennifer
I`m not sure where Edwin was when he went AWOL, but if he was on active service with the Chindits, you may find the following helpful:

Nick,
William Sweeney is remembered on the Rangoon Memorial in Taukkyan War Cemetery, Burma. He was a soldier of the 1st Battalion King's Liverpool Regiment, his army number was 3771094 and he was a Private in rank. He died between the 23rd and 25th of May 1944. All these details are on the CWGC website.(Type those letters in to Google, and follow the instructions). He was almost certainly with the soldier mentioned in the post previous to yours on this website. The men were defending a position in the Burmese jungle called Blackpool and suffered many casualties. The books I mention on the previous post would be just as relevant to your research I would say. If you have any other questions, then do email me.

Steve.

Iím also looking for some info or a point in the right direction, regarding my Grandmothers Brother. I have sketchy information to go on as my Nan was very young at the time and her mother, in a desperate attempt to cope with the grief threw away any information she had and refused to speak about him.
I do know however heís Name was William Sweeny, he may been a corporal, he Served in the Kings Own Liverpool Regiment and he was born in Dublin, he was Killed in action in Burma whilst serving in the Chinditís.
Thatís pretty much all I have, I do know however he was a career Soldier and was in the Army before the start of the war, my Nan also remembers that he was demoted to corporal for striking an officer.
Any help or guidance is more than welcome and very much appreciated.
